Once you add this technique to your knitting toolbox, you may never want to go to any other method of carrying floats. The ladderback jacquard technique will improve the tension of our stranded knitting while allowing you to span much larger areas between stitches. This knitting method adds stretch to the floats while preventing the alternate color from peeking through, and can be applied to nearly any form of stranded knitting. For designers or those who like to tweak their projects, incorporating this technique means you can design without limits on the space between alternating motifs.
No materials are provided.
Students should bring worsted weight yarn in two contrasting colors and your choice of needles in a compatible size (US #7-9) suitable for working in the round.
